# Remarks:

1.      Applications from Chapter 11 (Design Concepts and Applications to Beams and Shafts) are inserted at appropriate times/topics through home-works, tests, and examinations. Additional handouts are provided during the course.

2.      Homework assignments/solutions are distributed and collected every Monday. It is expected that each student will exert enough effort to prepare his assignments and submit the solutions in a suitable engineering format with a cover-page that includes adequate details about the assignment.

3.      The University regulations regarding excessive absences will be strictly adhered to in this course.  Read pages 38-40 of the Undergraduate Bulletin.
